This place is only open for breakfast, brunch and lunch. The menu is geared to breakfast and brunch. Although we did have a very good lunch. I had the club, which came on toasted 12 grain bread. It was wonderful. The other thing I like is they only use 2 slices instead of 3 slices of bread. I also selected... More

The Egg and I was recommended to us for breakfast. The wife and I went for breakfast twice because the food was wonderfully prepared. Each time I had the Colorado Jack Scramble (scrambled eggs with ham and veggies plus sausage) while the wife ordered her very healthy breakfast. The portions were generous and delicious.

We hiked a long afternoon and woke up the next morning famished. As usual, checked TripAdvisor when I arrived in Estes Park. Saw the Egg & I ranked #1. Went down for a late breakfast, and had a slight wait. The service was great, the food came fast and tasted wonderful. Had a special egg white omelet with asparagus that... More

We have recently eaten breakfast at the Egg and I on 3 occasions. The meals were very good and creatively different. The staff was efficient and friendly. And the cold drinks were served in a carafe.

While this delightful place doesn't have much curb appeal, it surprises with a beautiful sunny interior and an outstanding breakfast menu. Everything we ate was prepared with love and from scratch. The portions were quite huge and service was fast. There is a very nice variety of choices on the menu, lots of healthy choices too.

The Egg and I is our go to place for a delicious breakfast before hitting the trails in RMNP. It's always busy, yet the restaurant moves people in and out quickly. The food is definitely worth the wait. Aside from great food, we enjoy meeting staff from all over the world. The Egg and I hires good help and appears... More

No, really, the food is great. We stopped for breakfast on the last morning of our stay in Estes Park. We had a short wait for a table, but found the waiter to be friendly and service prompt. I'll be honest, I pigged out! The french toast (brioche!!), oatmeal and eggs were tasty. My husband tried one of their many... More
